I remember Ted from much happier times…..a full life with his first wife and two beautiful children. A lovely home, where guests were welcomed on festive occasions to deliciously prepared meals and family gatherings. His children, David, (Judy)and Hanna, (Don) both very clever and talented have done him proud in their achievements, both in raising seven beautiful, clever and accomplished grandchildren, Lindsay, Laura, David, Paulina,Erick, Julia and August and great grandson, Fraser, his greatest gifts to this world.
My grandfather was a very interesting man with many stories to tell. He was a great inspiration to me because he was a very hard worker and an extremely smart man. He’d often have several side jobs and projects in addition to his own job at Muellers. He came to Canada in 1948 with basically nothing to his name, and made a life for himself. I have tried to follow this example in my own life by working hard to achieve success and the things I desire. He was very supportive of my education for which I am thankful. I have many of his wood working projects in my own home to this day 🙂 Ever the generous host, I am sure many of his friends will recall his always open bar and endless supply of food provided to guests. I am glad we got to clink our glasses together one last time in May when I visited. Goodbye, Dziadek and thank you for a life time of interesting memories.
Good bye wujek!
We have not seen each other for many years but I still have good memories of visiting you in your garage with the service pit and watching you work on your car.
Time passes so quickly and we have had our own loss with your other nephew Pete so recently too.
Condolences to all.
Were neighbors for years. A very good and generous man. Our condolences to the family.
